“It may seem presumptuous for an ordinary woman with no particular advantages of education to translate and publish alone, the most wonderful book that has ever appeared in the world, and thought to be the most difficult to translate.” Against all odds, Julia Smith did it. The Holy Bible: Containing the Old and New Testaments is the first complete translation of the Bible by a woman. The work is strictly literal, even when the literalness rendered the passages incoherent in their English translation.
